11.2 Libraries Provided With the C++ Compiler

Several libraries are shipped with the C++ compiler.

The following table lists the libraries that are shipped with the C++ compiler and the modes in which they are available.

Table 11-1 Libraries Shipped With the C++ Compiler

STLport implementation of the standard library.
STLport library for debug mode
C++ runtime
C++ standard library
Classic iostreams
Supports the -xia option
Tools.h++ 7
Debug-enabled Tools.h++ 7
Garbage collection
Sun Performance Library

Note - Do not redefine or modify any of the configuration macros for STLport, Rogue Wave, or Oracle Solaris Studio C++ libraries. The libraries are configured and built in a way that works with the C++ compiler. libCstd and Tools.h++ are configured to interoperate so modifying the configuration macros results in programs that will not compile, will not link, or do not run properly.

11.2.1 C++ Library Descriptions

This section provides a brief description of each of the C++ libraries.

11.2.2 Accessing the C++ Library Man Pages

The man pages associated with the libraries described in this section are located in sections 1, 3, 3C++, and 3cc4.

To access man pages for the C++ libraries, type:

example% man library-name

To access man pages for version 4.2 of the C++ libraries, type:

example% man -s 3CC4 library-name

11.2.3 Default C++ Libraries

The C++ libraries are linked by default when building an executable program, but not when building a shared library (.so). When building a shared library, all needed libraries must be listed explicitly. The -zdefs option will cause the linker to complain if a needed library is omitted, and is the default when building an executable program.. The following libraries are linked by default by the CC driver:

-lCstd -lCrun -lm -lc

See A.2.49 -library=l[,l...] for more information.
